Ji Sung opens live courtroom show in first teaser for ‘The Devil Judge’

The Devil Judge lead showman Ji Sung has just notified anticipating viewers that his live courtroom program is about to begin!

Set in a fictional dystopian Korea, The Devil Judge follows a stern judge as he presides live court trials before the entire nation. Ji Sung (Doctor John) takes center stage for the titular role and is joined by Kim Min-jung (My Fellow Citizens), Park Jin-young (When My Love Blooms), and Park Gyu-young (Sweet Home).

In the freshly released preview for the series, Ji Sung makes a gasp-worthy transformation into his character Kang Yo-han, a head trial judge who punishes criminals mercilessly, thereby earning the nickname “devil judge.”

It opens with a close-up shot of his eye as it reflects an image of a city torn by flames and chaos. He then puts on his judicial robes and makes a dramatic entrance into a courtroom that has been transformed to resemble a modern-day reality TV show.

Judge Kang announces, “Citizens, the people’s court will now commence,” yet his piercing glare and ambiguous smile come across as ominous warnings of him being a real devil just hiding behind the mask of law.

The production team remarked, “The first teaser video was intended to guide everyone into the drama’s fictional setting of a disrupted Korea and its concept of a devil judge who will give a new definition to justice amidst a dystopian world. Please look forward to the changes Kang Yo-han’s ‘court of the people’ will bring during a time of turmoil.”

Slated to be a Saturday-Sunday drama, The Devil Judge will premiere on July 3 at 9 p.m. KST, replacing Mine.
